Ed Sheeran fans have an opportunity to own some rare — and definitely unique — memorabilia thanks to a charity auction featuring a mind-boggling array of stuff donated by the “Thinking Out Loud” singer.
British Auction house Bishop & Miller announced that more than 300 of Sheeran’s personal items are being auctioned off for charity, with proceeds to be donated to Zest, a new initiative created by St. Elizabeth Hospice to support the care of young adults who are living with progressive and terminal illnesses.
“The belongings have all been generously donated by the Sheeran family following a big clear-up of Ed’s old bedroom at his family home,” declares a press release, noting that prices range from $15 to thousands of dollars.
Among the pricier items are a Martin acoustic guitar, which is estimated at fetching around $5,000 CAD, while those on a tighter budget may want to bid on a pair of Sheeran’s used underwear, including these tighty whities:
Some of the more unusual items include:
A life-sized replica of Sheeran’s head made entirely from LEGO blocks, valued at between $1,100 and $1,700 CAD.
Sheeran’s teddy bear, attired in a Muay Thai top and Tedd Sheeran shorts.
Sheeran’s framed insect collection, including beetles, cicada and a scorpion.
A Heinz ketchup t-shirt, presented to Sheeran when he visited the Heinz History Centre in Pennsylvania.
“I’m really pleased to be able to help St Elizabeth Hospice with their Zest initiative,” Sheeran said in a statement. “The care of young adults living with terminal illnesses is vital and I’m so pleased that the auction will raise both awareness and support for this important cause.”
